Excerpt: I'm a 5+ hour a day gamer (not a young kid either) who demands a comfortable, high quality pointing device for my gaming. Having owned and loved a variety of Logitech, Saitek (MadCatz), Razer and other gaming-specific mice over the years, the bar was set fairly high for this product. Based on solid reviews on line, I ordered from my favorite toy store (B&H!) and received the mouse within a few days. GOOD: the mouse is ergonomically perfect for me!
Pros: Comfortable, Highly Configurable, High Quality Construction, High Quality Parts
Cons: Sides Are A Bit Too Slick, Weights Are Too Far Back
Summary: A great mouse. Many might hesitate with this brand for not being as famous as Razer or Logitech, I had the same hesitation but now I can tell you it was not quite necessary. You pay less on this mouse, but you get the same A9800 optical sensor which is the top chip available (also used by G500s/G700s), and the ergonomic design is very comfortable. The only thing is whether it lasts long, anyway I have got NCIX 3 yrs extended warranty.
Pros: -Extremely accurate, -All buttons configurable, -Custom color for backlight, -Small size fit people with a smaller hands, especially Asians
Cons: -Stain easily on the rubber surface, -No horizontal scrolling, but reasonable for gaming to maintain a stiff scroll
Summary: Had trouble figuring out how to launch software. No desktop icon (Win 7) Found link it in All programs via Start Menu. Would not launch software but wanted to update firmware. Finally realized this needed to be done first before software will run. (Button 5+12 will do it too but found out later). As for cursor wandering? Yes. Watched that thing wander all over the screen until I dropped the DPI to max 2400.
Pros: Big enough to fit my mitt.
Cons: Instructions how to launch software non-existent
Summary: I got this mouse about 10 days ago. I'm a gamer and I was looking for a replacement for my Logitech MX512. This one was fairly the same size. I like the RGB color on the mouse. 8200 DPi is more that you will EVER need. I had to update the firmware and download the driver from the website as they are not part of the box. Four 5g weights came in a little case in the box to adjust the mouse. The lid for the weight is a little off to open to my taste.
Pros: nice size, long cable, 8200 DPI. Nice color.
Summary: I am an old skool gamer playing mostly Return To Castle Wolfenstien: Enemy territory and have done since its relase 10 years ago and the original RTCW before that. In that time I have had various mice, starting with basic optical before moving on to Razer Deathadder's then Roccat Kone +, Roccat Kone Pure and now the XTD.
Summary: The software that you download from Roccat for this mouse works great and has
endless customization. The build quality & materials are excellent and the
mouse feels, looks and performs like a high end product. Ergonomically it fits
your hand snugly although it is slightly smaller than a Razer Death Adder, so it
is best for small – medium sized hands.
